In January, RapNet launched a brand new website, with an upgraded, more intuitive search, a more user-friendly interface and some clever new features.
Here’s are some of the main enhancements on the new site that will make it easier and faster to search for diamonds.
- Classic Search
- Saved Searches and Notifications
- Search Filter
- More search results options
- Custom Print/Email
- Sort By
- Show Selected
- Compare Diamonds
- Track multiple diamonds
- Manage My Tracked Diamonds
- Calculate Prices
- User Settings
- Show Listings
- Remembering Your User Preferences
- Your Diamond Position (for suppliers)
For members who prefer to use the classic search form which they have grown accustomed too, we have added the Classic Search form alongside the new search so you can easily switch between them. So members can enjoy an upgraded search in a way they are comfortable with.
Saved Searches and Notifications
Saved Searches and Saved Search Notifications have replaced private buy requests. You will be notified in your RapNet inbox when diamonds that meet your saved search are added to RapNet. This feature is available through the search screen when clicking the "Save Search" drop-down in the upper right-hand corner.
Easily fine-tune your search results on the fly by using the search filter.
We have added “More Options” to your search results with new features such as Email Selected, Print, Custom Print and Email, and Notify Multiple Sellers.
You can choose the fields to include when you email or print selected diamonds. You can also add a markup price.
The ‘Sort By’ menu allows you to sort your diamond search results by up to four different parameters and choose whether to sort according to ascending or descending order.
Only show the selected diamonds in your search results.
Compare up to 10 diamonds at any one time, view them alongside each other, delete the ones you don’t need and pin the ones you want to keep.
Members are able to group their tracked diamonds like they were able to on RapNet Classic. If you do not add your diamonds to a group, RapNet will group your tracked diamonds according to date added.
You have the ability to search, edit and delete tracked diamonds for a specific group.
We have added a handy Price calculator in the diamond search results so you can easily make price calculations when you search.
Other New Features
We have added a ‘Settings’ in the top menu under “Welcome user”, where you can see your current plan and adjust your privacy setting such as Listings Permissions and Blocking.
During trade shows, you can easily identify diamonds that are at the show in your search results, by a Show Listings icon . You can then click on seller details to see their location at the show in a pop-up.
Remembering Your User Preferences
Any of the settings that you choose, such as sort by, print and email columns will be remembered so you don’t have to re-enter them each time you log back in.
You can now see how your diamonds are positioned compared to other diamonds on RapNet. This feature is accessible through “My Listings” from the new “Magnifying glass” icon.
